A historic port and now a UNESCO City of Design, Dundee is brimming with culture; boasting a regenerated waterfront with two nautical museums (RRS Discovery, Captain Scott’s Antarctic expedition ship, and the 19th-century warship, HM Frigate Unicorn) and the architectural triumph of the newly opened V & A Dundee, Scotland’s first design museum. Further museums, arts centres, and theatres can be found across the city, along with a vibrant array of bars and restaurants. A wildlife centre, cinemas and excellent sports and leisure facilitates are also on offer. Largely walk-able, Dundee provides a delightful and convenient shopping experience, hosting a wide selection of high-street retail outlets, shopping centres (one with a large public library) and supermarkets. The city provides education at all levels, with private and state institutions and one of the UK’s leading universities. Major road and rail links connect Dundee to the rest of Scotland and further afield, whilst Dundee airport also offers regular flights to London Stanstead.
